SK in SK: South Korea & Other Countries

South Korea has always been closely linked to its neighbors: China, Japan, Mongolia & other northern nomadic nations, and since the 20th century division of the Korean peninsula, South Korea has always been linked to North Korea. As South Korea increases its international trade, including the export of its pop culture, it is becoming more closely linked to many countries in the world.

This list organizes different posts by country. When a post pertains to both the United States and North Korea, I have listed it under ‘United States of America’ since anybody who wants to find all of the North Korea posts can click ‘North Korea’ under ‘Categories’ on the right.
